Just watched a video about glamour photography, I expected that he would present 24-70, 70-200 II but his basic setup was 16-35, 24-105 and in the video he constantly the 100-400 on tripod in studio. Not the common lens for portraits/modelling I guess ? He takes advantage of the zoomfactor to wash out the background and is almost at the end of his studio shouting to the models :-D

the 100-400 has good image quality for wildlife and sports but never thought it's also a studio portrait lens

The 24-105 has always been a staple for child photographers. I've noticed seen it used in numerous training videos.

Or, If you are only shooting in the F8 to F16 range a 100-400mm is way easier to use. then switching between lenses.

I Know a "pro" that uses a 18-200mm lens on a crop body. He only shoots at F9 so it sharp enough for him. And he does not care about distortion. If its get the job done it's good.

And therein lies the difference: getting the job done vs excellence.

Sometimes I hate this site. Hobbiest thinking vs pro thinking. I'm bitter toward people that have $20k+ gear with the attitude that you have to have all of it.

I know pros that use 40ds and 35 f2 = ~$600 in gear. And they make a living doing it.

I used 100-400L at the begining as that was the only lens that I had. Not sure what the issue is. You can use any lens you want. Some shoot instead of starting 10 threads everyday on same thing over and over.

Its been well known to use longer zoom as a port lens to soften backgrounds.
Another very used technique is to replace the background as a second layer.
The replaced background can be same as the orig shot but made softer, less contrast, lighter, etc.

As Zach Arias has stated. You use whatever lens you have to get the job done. It may not be the perfect lens for every given situation, but usually a little bit of creativity goes a long way in completing the task.

Sorry if I came up as know all person. But the thing is there is no substitute for your own hands on learning. Go out and shoot, post the shots and learn from the mistakes.

I agree but for someone who owns a great deal of expensive lenses/gear, that's a bit of hypocritical of him to say.
